Jurassic World Shows Off Dinosaur Destruction In First Official Photos

56 minutes ago

Up until this point, Jurassic World has been (understandably) shrouded in secrecy. Slowly but surely, new details have been released to a public that still remembers the last time they tried to make a Jurassic Park movie, but is still optimistic for the next go around. Today, the world has gotten its first glimpse of the set of what.s definitely one of next summer.s most anticipated films, and the results are spare, but intriguing. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have the first three photos from Colin Trevorrow.s big-budget Jurassic World Check these out! First up is a look at Bryce Dallas Howard.s character, who has been said to be one of the scientists who are part of this new attempt to create a place where man and dinosaur can co-exist until a convenient case of sabotage/the next power outage. She definitely looks like she could »

Live-Action Barbie Comedy In the Works At Sony Pictures

1 hour ago

Barbie is no stranger to the movies, as she.s made tons of direct-to-video animated films, and was even featured prominently in Pixar.s Toy Story franchise. So it.s no surprise that she.s being set up for a live-action feature film debut. After all, if we can make a movie about Angry Birds or even Peeps, why not a movie about Barbie? The surprise comes from the fact that the Barbie movie has just set up shop at Sony Pictures, and not with either of its previous partners: Universal Studios (which handles the Home Video release of the direct to video animated pictures) or Walt Disney Pictures. This news broke recently, courtesy of a story in Deadline, and names Walter Parks and Laurie MacDonald as the producers of the project. Apparently this deal is a big enough matter that both studio head Amy Pascal and production president Hannah »

The Walking Dead's Stephen Yeun And Felicia Day Join Comic Adaptation Chew

2 hours ago

While the rest of the outside world just stands around completely unaware, fans of the exceptionally original Image Comics series Chew have been chomping on nothing but false hopes as one potential adaptation after another has slipped through the cracks. But production company Heavy Metal.s co-founders David Boxenbaum and Jeff Krelitz are now closer than anyone has ever been to bringing writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory.s work to life, and they.ve hired The Walking Dead.s Steven Yeun and geek culture superstar Felicia Day to join the animated feature.s voice cast. Now all they need to do is hurry up and finish casting and animating before some other setback halts production. According to THR, director Krelitz (Torchwood: Web of Lies) thought Yeun was a "no-brainer" for the lead role of Tony Chu, an Asian American detective-turned-fda agent with the rare distinction of being a »

Doug Liman Headed Into Space For Railman; Plus New Edge Of Tomorrow Poster

3 hours ago

Doug Liman has wanted to go off into space for a long time. He toiled for years on Luna, a moon-landing project he developed with Jake Gyllenhaal, but it looks like that will never come to fruition. Now, thanks to a children.s book, Liman is ready to see the stars once again. THR reports that Doug Liman is in negotiations to direct Railman, based on an upcoming novel by Philip Reeve. The plot concerns a future where we take trains from universe to universe. It will center on a thief who is tricked into stealing an item of great value, becoming the subject of an extensive manhunt. The book isn.t even scheduled to be published until fall 2015, but Warner Bros. was excited enough to pick up the property themselves. Liman.s had an interesting career, one that.s ultimately tough to peg. Certainly he.s miles away from »

Jurassic World Sequels Already Being Planned

5 hours ago

Let.s not be naïve here. We know that no one ever plans to make a single movie anymore: when a writer enters a studio with a pitch about Sandra Bullock taking care of a sick kid with leukemia, or Shia Labeouf as a tragic abolitionist, they want to hear what the sequel will be like. As Universal preps Jurassic World for 2015 release, you can bet your ass they.re looking to continue the Jurassic world. Don.t actually bet your ass, though. You can.t get that back. Director Colin Trevorrow spoke to Empire about the coming dino-sequel and crossed his fingers that he would be invited back, to continue an exploration into the dinosaur world. He claims, "We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot... We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a »

Quentin Tarantino's Lawsuit Against Gawker Has Been Dismissed

5 hours ago

Quentin Tarantino.s attempt to sue the gossip Web site Gawker just hit a major speed bump A federal judge in California dismissed the director.s claim against Gawker that the Web site had conducted copyright infringement by directly linking to a different site that was housing a copy of Quentin Tarantino.s work-in-progress screenplay for Hateful Eight. Tarantino tried to claim that Gawker was "contributing" to the infringement of his copyrighted work. Gawker tried to hide behind the fact that they were merely "reporting" on the existence of this leaked script. They filed a motion in court to dismiss Tarantino.s lawsuit. THR reports that on Tuesday, a judge granted the motion because Tarantino "failed to adequately plead facts establishing direct infringement by a third party or facts that would demonstrate [Gawker] either caused, induced, or materially contributed to the alleged direct infringement of those third party infringers."

Mean Girls Star Writes Moving Coming-Out Letter To His Beloved Character

5 hours ago

We're fast approaching the 10-year anniversary of the release of Mean Girls, the Tina Fey-penned teen comedy that became a touchstone of humor and angst for countless fans. Maybe you related to Cady Heron's confusion over the cruel nature of high school cliques. Maybe you wanted to be one The Plastics, with perfect skin and rules on when it's okay to wear pink (Wednesdays) or sweatpants (only on Fridays). Maybe you cheered for Janis Ian and her reckless sense of rebellion. Or maybe you looked to Damian, Janis's openly gay best friend, and saw a source of inspiration. It turns out the character proved to be just that for Daniel Franzese, the then closested actor who played him. Though onscreen Franzese was completely convincing as an out and proud high school student, in real-life he was petrified of making his sexual orientation public. But he has recently followed in »

Hollywood Has Run Out Of Ideas, So They're Making A Peeps Movie

6 hours ago

Sometimes, a good movie sparks negative trends. Such is the case with the critically-beloved The Lego Movie, which has grossed $441 million worldwide, and is already set for a sequel in 2017. It.s impossible to ignore the success of a film partially driven by merchandise, and we suspected The Lego Movie would inspire studios to push narrative-less brands even harder on us. Which is how we.re now getting a damned Marshmallow Peeps movie. In perhaps their saddest exclusive ever, Deadline reports that the film and TV rights to Marshmallow Peeps, a $2 billion a year operation (!), have been purchased. And now screenwriter Adam Rifkin has been tasked with writing a Peeps film. The plot (yes, plot) would involve Peeps in a diorama contest where one Peep is misplaced and must hustle to rejoin the rest of the crew, hopping in and out of various other dioramas. The plan is pretty much »

Bioshock Takes A Few Steps Closer To Reality At Sony

6 hours ago

Much like the Halo movie before it, the film adaptation for Bioshock has had a long, troubled history. Yet much like Microsoft.s revived hopes of producing an adaptation of their Halo title, Sony now looks to be reviving the 2K Games/Irrational Studios gaming franchise from the depths of abandonment. Kotaku first ran with a story that Sony Pictures had registered several domain names with "Bioshock Movie" in the title. This was reported to have happened last month, which doesn.t sound all that weird considering that falls between the announcements of both Halo TV shows, and both Halo and Bioshock were axed at Universal Studios around the same time . Both projects could have been picked up in turnaround, with Halo being announced first, because of the Xbox Live exclusivity. In fact, the only reason one could assume Sony hasn.t officially announced Bioshock as an acquisition is simply »

That.s a bucket of cold water tossed on the »

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron To Bring Back Lou Ferrigno As Hulk's Voice

14 hours ago

Thanks to his work on 82 episodes of the Incredible Hulk television series that ran in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Lou Ferrigno has long been associated with the giant green monster from Marvel Comics. In recognition of this fact, Marvel Studios has twice hired the former bodybuilder to reprise his role as Hulk and voice him in their live-action movies, and he'll be doing it a third time next year. The website Nuke The Fridge caught up with Ferigno at WonderCon in Anaheim, CA this past weekend, and got confirmation that he will be back to do the voice of Hulk in Joss Whedon's upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thus far, Ferrigno's work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been pretty limiting, as he has only actually said four words. There was "Hulk Smash" in Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk: And then his "Puny God »

Fantastic Four's Michael B. Jordan Signs On For CIA Thriller 'Men Who Kill'

18 hours ago

20th Century Fox is a studio that's looking to build itself back up after a good period of flops. Sometimes that means picking the right projects, and sometimes it means picking the right talent. Michael B. Jordan is just the type of rising actor that can help a studio get back on its feet, and not only will he be helping them out by starring as Johnny Storm in their new Fantastic Four reboot, he'll also be lending a hand with a new pitch they've acquired. Variety has announced that a CIA thriller titled Men Who Kill has been pitched to and acquired by 20th Century Fox, with Ratchet and Clank's Tj Fixman set as a writer and Greg Berlanti (Wrath of the Titans, Green Lantern) hired as a producer. As far as the story is concerned, the only detail available to the public is that it's a "CIA thriller »

It's A Small World Movie In The Works At Disney, National Treasure Director To Helm

19 hours ago

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise proved to the Walt Disney Company that there is big money in making film adaptations of their most popular theme park attractions, so they are getting ready to try it again. The studio has now begun work on It's A Small World, a new movie based on the multi-cultural themed ride found in parks around the world, and they have hired director Jon Turteltaub to helm it. Turteltaub has a long history of the studio filled with some big hits - including the National Treasure series - but his last effort for Disney was a bit of a disaster: The Sorcerer's Apprentice cost a whopping $150 million, but wound up being a huge flop domestically. The movie was somewhat saved by the foreign grosses, but certainly not enough to make the film considered successful. The filmmaker had some better luck with his most recent film. »
